Operating Area

Orant primarily serves the Dowa District of Central Malawi. There are about 36,000 people in our catchment area in Dowa.


Orant’s campus is located in Kasese, about an hour’s drive from the capital city Lilongwe. Our  campus is home to a fully stocked health center, maternity ward, office, guest house, and public latrine.  Our team lives in homes on campus or in the closest neighboring village. Each family has an allotted farm. Orant owns thirty-three additional acres of land adjacent to campus. Currently, this land is used for agricultural programs.
